Let's Get Moving!

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity each week divided over a minimum of three days per week.

Exercise during pregnancy is safe and beneficial to most women and their babies. Be sure to consult with your healthcare provider for exercise recommendations before beginning an exercise program to make sure you do the right kind of exercises at each stage of pregnancy.

Symptoms to be mindful of as you exercise while pregnant:

  • Discomfort or pain in pelvic region
  • Urine leakage
  • Feeling of heaviness in pelvic region

If you experience any of these symptoms, please consult your physician about possible referral to the Inova Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy Program.

Exercising should be comfortable. Inova Physical Therapy offers women simple exercises and tips that can help with some common discomforts of pregnancy and even prepare your body for labor and delivery.
